Mike's Books

Average Rating = 3.40/5 Mike's Books

A couple of climbers take a rest on the huge ledge at the top of the first pitch of this moderate (5.6) off-width climb. The secret is to stay the hell out of the crack and stem your way through: just make sure to bring some bigger gear!

Headstone Rock, SW Corner, 5.6

Average Rating = 3.64/5 Headstone Rock, SW Corner, 5.6

One benefit to the "overflow" campground at Ryan's is that you're close to Headstone with it's moderate but head-spinning routes.
